e.g. https://bittrex.com/api/v1.1/public/getmarketsummary?market=btc-bcc



What do these numbers refer to since they do not match the BTC or BCC bid and ask volume values on the bittrex screen when looking at this pair.

Any ideas what these two values are showing? I need to know the total number of bid and ask BTC volumes via the API calls? Thanks

The Bittrex API documentation doesn't divulge many details but I expect those two values would be all outstanding (open) buy and sell offers, not just for that day.

You may need to contact Bittrex for further clarification.

  • Thanks for getting back, Willtech. Do you specifically mean the number of outstanding (open) buy and sell orders rather than referring to the currency value? Commented Jan 27, 2018 at 13:53
  • What would be useful is the OpenBuyOrders_Base value i.e. the BTC or other CCY amount! The number of orders is not useful and doesnt give the right indication of volume Commented Jan 27, 2018 at 14:35
